Values and Ethos

Learning Mission

In May 2016, three of our partner primary schools converted to academies; Horninglow Primary, Lansdowne Infant and Eton Park Junior Academies, and joined The de Ferrers Trust alongside The de Ferrers Academy itself.

At each academy we will strive to inspire through the delivery of a 'World Class' education ensuring that every student achieves their potential. We aspire to be a beacon of excellence within the community we serve where everyone feels valued, included and proud. 

Our PRIDE values of Partnership, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Excellence are the foundations of our Trust and the community we serve. 

At Horninglow Primary, our focus is on learning not just within and across subject areas, but also the personal development of all learners who attend our school. We strive to inspire all learners to go beyond what they consider possible for themselves, to experience and try new things and to realise all aspects of their potential. There are no glass ceilings put on any of our learners; we wish to ignite a passion for learning and for life that will remain with them as they move on to their next phase of their learning journey.

Our core moral purpose is encapsulated in the vision statement for the school:                                    

"...the main thing is...learning" Dr Stephen R Covey
